- Wunderlist stopped accepting new sign-ups today.
- The Wunderlist team shared some advice on migrating to Microsoft To Do in a new post.
Microsoft acquired 6Wunderkinder and its Wunderlist app in June of 2015. Now, four and a half years later, the makers of Wunderlist announced that the app will shut down on May 6, 2020. Following the shutdown date, items will no longer sync on Wunderlist. The team behind Wunderlist shared the news in a new post, and also invited people to migrate to Microsoft To Do.
The team behind Wunderlist spent years migrating its features into Microsoft To Do. Rather than abruptly forcing a switch, Microsoft gave people years for Microsoft To Do to catch up and for people to switch over. The team behind Wunderlist believes that now is the time to complete the transition, stating, "With all our latest updates, we're confident in To Do being the best alternative for Wunderlist now and so we believe it's the right time to make the next move."
Following the shut down on May 6, to-dos will no longer sync with Wunderlist. The app's makers added that for a limited time after the shutdown date, people will still be able to migrate lists to Microsoft To Do. 6Wunderkinder has an FAQ page that further breaks down the future of Wunderlist and what happens going forward.
In September, Wunderlist's founder expressed an interest in buying Wunderlist back. His efforts appear to have been in vain, as 6WunderKinder officially scheduled the app's shut down. Following the founder's interest in buying Wunderlist, our Executive Editor Daniel Rubino spoke about killing the past, stating "It's time for Wunderlist users (and its founder) to move on."
